About LGC

The Laramie Garden Club is a volunteer-based, non-profit organization that was formed in 1960 to serve the community of Laramie and be a resource to fellow gardeners. A primary objective of the Garden Club is to foster appreciation and practice of all aspects of gardening through education and the support of community beautification projects.  We have approximately 50 active members, many of whom have lived in Laramie for decades and are as experience Laramie gardeners as they come!

  1. We sincerely thank you for choosing our garden at 1507 Sheridan for Gem City Garden Gems for the week of June 26, 2016.

    [From the LGC: We are always excited to see nicely landscaped yards in our community. We should clarify that the Garden Gems judges include members of the LGC as well as the Laramie Beautification Committee and is, of course, supported by the Boomerang.]
